MICHAEL Clarke has paid tribute to Brad Haddin, the Australian captain’s long-term right-hand man, who in all likelihood has played his last match of Test cricket.

    AFL legend Dermott Brereton has gone head to head with a Sydney journo in a radio skirmish, and he’s threatening to sue.

    MITCHELL “MJ” Johnson, Mitchell “The Star” Starc, Josh “Hoff” Hazlewood, Peter “P Siddy” Siddle and young sensation Patty Cummins are Australia’s No.1 boy band.

    WALLABIES coach Michael Cheika has slammed Mourad Boudjellal for threatening Quade Cooper will “be as broke as Greece” if he doesn’t honour his Toulon contract.

    MITCHELL Johnson may be the most Herculean fast bowler that’s ever been, but England are still looking to roll out the green carpet for him at Edgbaston.
